Making your own Herbal Oils and Salves!

This is the class students have been waiting a year for! 

Take all the recipes Iíve given you and make them more effective by adding your
home made herbal oils (this is not the same as essential oils). Or, come for the first time,
and learn this cornerstone of handcrafted herbalism, not just for your body, but also for cooking.

In this class we learn two methods for infusing the therapeutic properties of plants into oil.
 We will also make a salve using herbal oils. We will discuss herbal oils for use in the kitchen,
and also a materia medica of safe, edible herbs that you can grow in your garden or buy easily to get started.

This is an Intermediate level class, but is suitable for beginners who have attended one other Isle of Woman class.
hint hint: come to the class that same day, that morning on summertime herbals! :)

Please bring three small mason jars with lids, and if you have it, a good handful of fresh edible herb.
